    No, not TNA fans, which was my first answer.

    But seriously - a fan with low expectations is a mark and a fan with impossibly high expectations is a smark. That's how it breaks down in my eyes. Titus is a champion of the marks.
    I don't really get what you are trying to say here?
    People liked his commentary, because the overall expectation was really low?

    ''Ricardo Rodriguez is the best character on WWE TV.''

    No Van, that's life. You're always being judged. It's just that on the internet, because it cannot function without textual communication, people don't keep their opinions to themselves like in real life. That - and it's much easier to be braver on the 'net and say things you wouldn't normally dare say to someones face. Which is why I am sad for users on the internet who haven't had much actual experience with real life situations. They really stand out on the internet - there's no "normal person filter" on them.

    I'm saying you can find evidence to back up even the slightest of claims. Doesn't make it true. So you found, let's say, 5 reports that Titus was well received. More than likely, if you checked, the reports all stem from the same place. Did you know EWN has at least one sister site that reports the exact same things, in the exact same way?

    So, your Family Feud-style "...and the survey says...." commentary is pretty wishy-washy. I question your 'sources'.

    I have a feeling I am one of this ignorant guys that your speaking of. Most of the girls That I go after are my friends or girls that seem nice and like someone I would hang out with outside of the fact I find them attractive.

    Like Shaz.

    Whilst true, you're always going to be judged for everything in life, especially opinions.

    But signing up to an internet wrestling forum is like auto-becoming a mark. Regardless of opinions on brands, wrestlers or storylines. Wouldn't happen on any other type of forum is all.

    If I joined a baseball forum and said "I think the Yankees will win the world series this year regardless of opposition." I'd get people either agreeing or disagreeing. If I joined another wrestling forum and said "I think Cena will win at the Royal Rumble regardless of opposition." I'd be called a mark and judged as someone who could never know how wrestling works.

    Not the best example I could use but I'm tired and it'll do nicely anyway.

    Yeah, because I can't see when something is the exact same thing five times, right?
    Oh, well that's cool.

    I'll give some sources.

    Yeah, I frequent a couple of other forums where there are some wrestling fans, and after that segment with him on commentary I was reading posts like these:

    Whoever let the Prime Time Players do commentary should be fired. Torture.
    What a train wreck lol.
    get Titus ONeil off my television
    Guess I'm now just taken back by the apparent disparity in the reception for what I personally perceived to be a sort of non-event. But, hey, if talking about washrags and Tussin is going to be what breaks that glass ceiling for them, more power to him.


    Recently Played (out of ten):
    Watch Dogs (PS4)- 6.5
    Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)- 9.5
    Wolfenstein: The New Order (PS4)- 8
    Shovel Knight (Wii U
    )- 9

    Yeah, wrestling fans are a pretty special breed huh? Not your normal, average everyday type of person. At least half are missing a chromosome or something.
